how to change a solid color

How do I change a solid color in an video? I have seen "color replacement" and "levels" but I dunno how they work.

Seriously, SERIOUSLY, Rick?

Colour Replacement is what you want. It's a bit tricky finding the key colour but that's what you want to concentrate on. If you have a graphics app with a colour picker that will help, otherwise you can just use your intuition to get in the ballpark, e.g. pink is light red so 1.0, 0.5, 0.5 then experiment from there and adjust the Master Threshold to expand or contract the range of colours.

Another option is to use Chroma Key (not ChromaKeyFast which just does blue and green) to key out the colour and make it transparent then put whatever you want in behind it to replace it. You still have issue of finding the key colour.

I figured it out, thank you.
I am just not used to precise color replacing/keying. Honestly, I'm used to less numbers, if that makes sense.
